The Naperville Area Homeowners Confederation is opposing a development proposed for Water Street that would see five-story buildings sprout up along the south side of the Riverwalk. Would the project forever destroy Naperville's charm?
That's what NAHC president Rick Strawbridge said: “If approved in its current form, it will forever change the character of our downtown and the Riverwalk.” The City Council is set to debate the issue on Tuesday. During a recent workshop, a majority of council members indicated they wanted to move forward with the project.
Sun columnist Bill Mego is taking a stand against the project, saying the council should allow only shorter buildings along the Riverwalk.
